Well, even a great goalie gets beat in that situation. Larsen, who is the worst defender on the ice tonight, did nothing on that play. He didn't get or really even make a good attempt at the pass, and he did nothing to get in the way of the shot. He was as useful defending that as us spectators at home. Bachman had no chance. You can't let a good shooter have a shot at a wide open net without the least bit of a challenge.
Even on that first goal they're replaying, Bachman flopped around like an idiot, but he wasn't helped by Larsen getting pushed around to see the Canucks get the puck back to get that crazy goal.
